Google Gains U.S. Search Market Share for Ninth Consecutive Month

When comScore Networks released their monthly qSearch analysis, the results were the same as in previous months: Google is increasing their U.S. market share for searches. With Yahoo! in second place and MSN in third, Google seems to be effectively taking over the market.

With 6.6 billion searches last month, users in the United States are constantly looking for new information. Google and Yahoo! together account for around 95% of the searches conducted in the U.S.

One change for this month is that MySpace.com was added to the group. Whether or not this small player will really step into the big league search engines remains to be seen, but they did account for 0.6% of the U.S. search market last month.
